A pretty good ending to this post-apocalyptic faerie series. It was a quick and easy read. I charged through it so quickly, that I probably have eye strain. I enjoy the creative world building. It’s very different from other dystopias I’ve read.
In the last book, at the end, Liza left hand was turned to stone. She has this handicap throughout the book. Her hand it frozen and pretty useless. She deals with it well though, and that makes her a strong character. Her abilities as a summoner

A beautiful and thoughtful end to one of my favorite series. I was saddened and hopeful with the resolution of the trilogy. Simner is an amazing writer.

He llegado al final de la trilogía y cuesta dejarla, como si las raíces del árbol de Quia se hubieran arraigado en mi alma. Toda la historia tiene un cierre completo, conocemos el destino de cada personaje, conocemos el precio de la magia y de la guerra, pero también descubrimos como a veces lo mejor es dejar ir, porque eso es lo correcto.
Disfruté mucho con la aparición de nuevos personajes, reencontrarme con los conocidos pero por sobretodo caminar de nuevo por Faerie, por su historia y su pas

Faerie After was a beautiful conclusion to the trilogy. It dug deeper than the past two books, and offered a better insight into relations between the fae and humans. It gave them a backstory and the faeries more individualized personalities. The problems Liza faced were more difficult than that of the previous books, but you could tell she (as well as all the other characters) had grown throughout the trilogy. The book touched on topics like forgiveness, trust and accountability which made it e ...more

This last book in the series really got to the crux of why things were going so wrong. Ms. Simner took us way back in the lore, which I always appreciate, and we didn't get a sickly sweet ending. This might be the best book of them all, but if this series was a sandwich, the second book would be the shitty piece of ham I would eat part of before giving up on and finishing the bread and cheese (or first and third books). Yeah, I abandon pieces of sandwich I don't enjoy. Sue me. ...more

This is the third book in the trilogy. Liza is working on solving a new mystery with Matthew as they find living things crumbling to ash. Liza must cross over to Faerie to see if she can stop what is happening and save her world. The question is how much is she willing to sacrifice and is it too late? Liza must use her powers and skills wisely and her friends and family are at risk.
The battle to save both worlds is about to begin.

A conclusion to two dying worlds

When two worlds are dying and both sides are to blame - how is it that both fae and humans can work together to try to survive ?

This is the third book in the trilogy and an easy quick read that was very well wrapped up in the end. A lot of good tear-jerker sacrificial moments and some anger, but the struggles written in this book are well written and flow nicely.

Finally we get to see what it left of faerie, and the faeries that are left are desperate for help. Instead of asking, they try to force Abby and Liza using glamour. This is a good adventure book with lots of action. The ending is totally obvious.... but it’s not. I like being surprised. Too bad this is the last book of the seeries.

Unexpected Adventure

This final book in the Bones of Fairy Trilogy was a great read. The merging of human and faerie wolds around the backdrop of war and environmental destruction was innovative and quite relevant to real world contexts. This final book and the whole trilogy were quite enjoyable.

This series is alright. I don't think I'd really recommend it. It's too dark and I felt like the ending was pretty good but it was a little rushed. Overall, it's a cool idea for a story but wasn't my favorite. ...more

A Solid End

There were plenty of twists and turns in this final book in the series. It started a bit slow, but picked up quickly and came to a very satisfying conclusion. Great series if you're looking for an enjoyable, relaxing read.

A nice cozy read with a plot that is somehow both nicely predictable and yet trilling. Recommended to those who like the two previous books.

What a fun read!

I really enjoyed this trilogy, so much so that I’m sad to have finished the last book. Would definitely recommend.

Faerie After is the final book in the Bones of Faerie trilogy. This review will probably not make much sense to people who haven’t at least read the first book.

Faerie After picks up six months after Faerie Winter. Even though spring has returned to the world, mysterious and terrifying crumbling patches of the wilderness hint of something disastrous on the brink. It seems that the realm of Faerie is officially wasting away into nothingness as a consequence of humans blasting it into a nuclear wa

This is the final part of Janni Lee Simner's Faerie Trilogy. I've been reading this series since Book 1 first came out and fell in love with Simner's world, characters and beautiful writing. It's a bitter sweet parting to come to the end, but here we are.

In this last installment, we find Liza, Matthew, Allie and the others facing a strange phenomenom facing their world - there is a strange grey crumbling destroying nature on Earth. Soon they learn it reaches deeper than that - into the heart of

I absolutely loved returning to Liza’s world. I’ve been dying to see what happens to both the human and fae worlds in this trilogy. Liza is still as strong of a character as ever, fighting for what is right, pushing the limits and always looking out for those around her. I find that Liza learns quite a lot in this book. She begins to truly understand her friends, what the destruction around her really means and that perhaps that sometimes fate shouldn’t be messed with.

There is still that sense

Wow. I really wish I had read this book sooner. I have been anticipating this book for a while, so when I began it, I was excited. I am very happy with it. It was very well written, and held a few parts in particular that I have favorites. I loved that Liza spent more time in the Realm, but I really liked that more Faerie characters were introduced, and that we got to learn more about the Faeries, like where their gifts came from, and about the First Tree. I also liked that Liza left her body an ...more

i LOVED the entire series. I think that this should be like as big as harry potter and stuff but it isn't!

i REALLY hated the ending though. i mean, i was reading, and it went along, rebbecca was called back but just as a shadow and then she sorta went INTO tara to cure her fire fever. but she couldn't have gone to rhianne's roots and death and stuff because she'd need help from liza. then two seasons later, about 6 months you find out that tara is pregnant. so im like, OMG REBBECCA WILL BE BORN

There’s a new sickness sweeping through the forest. Piles of grey ash are being found where living creatures once stood. If you touch the ash it claims you as its next victim. Stumbling across this phenomena Liza decides to investigate what is causing everything to turn to ash. She discovers that Faerie is deteriorating, turning to dust, and that its fate is linked to that of the human world. To find a solution Liza must cross over to the Faerie realm putting herself and those she ca

So in this book we basically pick up where we left off in the last. Liza is learning to deal with her stone hand, people are learning to live together magic and all even though some not as comfortably as wanted. Caleb and Tara are still waiting on their new baby. Karin is adjusting to her blindness but something is not right... Matthew comes to Liza with a leaf on his fur and when she touches it it crumbles to dust. Can they figure out in time what's going on in their world and in Faerie before ...more

This could have been much much better. Seriously, this plot is wasted.

I really loved it, but that's exactly why I think the author could get more from this book. I'd have loved to know more about Elin, Tolven, Nys, Matthew, Allie... even Liza! The story is too short, too fast.

Maybe it's just the sadness... having to say goodbye to this trilogy will be hard. Faerie and the human world are just too interesting to let them go.

Well, a good book nonetheless.
